Child Pornography Transportation

The US DOJ didn’t have a strong enough case against former El Camino del Sol resident Paul Wilkins for child sex trafficking. All the factually informative documents remain under duty seal by the US District Court.  There is a redacted version of the complaint floating around somewhere. Sure would like to get my hands on a copy. 

70 year-old Wilkins plead down to guilty of child pornography transportation in return for a 13 year federal prison sentence.

Here’s the plea deal and the court docket downloaded from Pacer.gov. If you are an attorney logged onto your Pacer account the links on the docket are live so you can just click on through, but there really isn’t much else there.
